    Multimillion-dollar ruling against Giuliani shows cost of spreading election lies

    I don’t think it’s simply spreading election lies, it has to do with defamation. I believe it is still not a crime to spread lies in the USA, as lies are protected speech so long as they don’t cross the line over to defamation.

    If spreading lies was a crime, CNN/MSNBC would be on the hook for trillions of dollars by now. 😉
